Lexapro.

I went back on Lexapro today. It's kind of a relief. I try not to hop on the medication bandwagon too quickly because I always say to myself that my depression will resolve itself in the next few days and it usually does, but now it's been a few months of consistently feeling bad and swirling the same useless crap around in my head. A few weeks of not taking care of myself (like not brushing my teeth at night) and falling asleep at 8:30 pm fully clothed is not a good sign. Crying at work and at parties is not a good sign. Anyhoo - I hope to be a bit more cheerful soon.

I hope the Lexapro works well for you, that is what I started on right after our diagnosis too!

Hope you are getting well soon. Take good care yourself and don't take things too serious - do your best, that all. Exercise should help too. love :)

It is good to back on medication. And it works. There are many people are taking those. I am taking very low meantance dose. And I hope I can off the medicine soon.

Take easy and do not give yourself a pressure. Work hard and do not take pressure are two different things.
